Lovey has a new site with some interesting things on it….See here:
Nice to have you back, Lovey!
Here are two mothers that recently implemented some things I have written about with success; thought you all might like a peek:

Eileen has a very heartfelt post here about Waldorf Afterschooling, and the agony that often goes into a decision about whether to send our children to school or to homeschool: http://eileensplace.blogspot.com/
There is always something beautiful over at Are So Happy: http://aresohappy.squarespace.com/ and here at Uncommon Grace: http://uncommongrace.typepad.com/uncommongrace/ and here at That Artist Woman: http://thatartistwoman.blogspot.com/ and over here at Catherine’s:
I also like Melisa Nielsen’s blog here: http://waldorfjourney.typepad.com/a_journey_through_waldorf/ and Annette’s blog here: http://natural-childhood.blogspot.com/ and glimpsing into the lives of the Tan family: http://syrendell.blogspot.com/
I try not to stop to look at other people’s blogs daily, because that is too much time on the computer for me and I get sucked into Rabbit Trails (and Rabbit Holes that I can’t get out of!) I really only have enough time to sweep through email and write a bit, but I really do appreciate all the beautiful and informative things people put on their blogs and I appreciate all of you who make this blog one of your few daily stops as you get on with living and doing!
Many blessings and In Much Gratitude,
“Rabbit holes” is the perfect description! I feel much the same… I love to look at the blogs but really don’t visit them very often. Blog overload can be a big problem for me! There are so many wonderful blogs full of beautiful and creative ideas. When I start looking I get sucked in and can become quite overwhelmed. The computer is such a great resource and can be quite a problem too. You see all these great ideas and you have idea overload! Sometimes I have the feeling that if I don’t check out the whole blog (or every blog mentioned) I might *miss something*! I am guessing I am not the only one!
Yours is the one blog I read daily, and I feel like it always offers something helpful. But having just read a bunch of blogs yesteday and today I going on a computer fast for the week. I feel like the antidote is lots of time to play with my children, have time for meditation and prayer, and just running around in the fresh air.
Thank you for including me, Carrie. Your writing is very inspirational as well.
Dear Carrie, I have a 2 year old son and I am deeply inspired and nourished by steiner-wardorf education. I have recently found your site and love it! Thanks so much. I would like to share with your readers an amazing opportunity – this July Jon Young and some of his core team are coming over to the UK from US to run a residential course for parents and teachers in the Art of Mentoring. This is hard to summarise here and more info can be found on the webiste http://www.artofmentoring.co.uk . I have found Jon Youngs work with children and with adults to enhance their workings with children profoundly inspiringTo put it crudely, it is perhaps like a Steiner-Wardorf approach but inspired by nature, connection with the natural world, indigenous cultures, ancient wisdom and the problems of modern civilized society.
I have read much relating to Jon Young’s work and have enjoyed listening to many hours of his talks on audio CDs. I am so excited about this course and recommend that anyone, but especially home-eductors and wardorf teachers, would enjoy learning more from him.
So glad to see Lovey back!
Yours is definitely a blog I’ve read every post on, and continue to come back and re-read. You have so much good information here.
Thank you for including me! 🙂
